BRAND PERSONALITY Why you desperately need it

Слайд 1

The hardest thing about selling today is that customers don’t need you the way they used to.

Слайд 2

They can find anything they want with a few clicks and have endless choice at their fingertips.

Слайд 3

They are also highly sceptical of any claim you make and for the most only act on trusted recommendations.

Слайд 4

According to Brian Carroll, CEO of InTouch and author of Lead Generation for the Complex Sale, up to 95 percent of qualified prospects on your Web site are there to research and are not yet ready to talk with a sales rep

Слайд 5

but as many as 70 percent of them will eventually buy a product from you

Слайд 6

or your competitors.

Слайд 7

The challenge is therefore this:   How do I attract attention?

Слайд 8

How do I make sure visitors stick around long enough to really ‘get’ why I’m the one they should do business with?

Слайд 9

How do I get them to love my brand?

Слайд 10

How do I make sure they remember me when they are ready to purchase?

Слайд 11

There are three key things you need to get in place …

Слайд 12

You need to create: “Wow! That’s impressive.” You need to capture attention. If they don’t know about you, they can’t buy from you.

Слайд 13

You need to create “Aha! I get it!” Explain it so they ‘get’ it. If people don’t ‘get’ why they should buy from you rather than the competition they won’t buy from you.

Слайд 14

You need to create “Yes, I want it!” Convert excitement into action. You have to persuade people to take action.

Слайд 15

But to make all this really effective you need to wrap it all in a strong Brand Personality

Слайд 16

Imagine this onion is your brand

Слайд 17

And these other onions are other people’s brands.

Слайд 18

How do you get people to choose your onion over those other lookalikes crowding your space?

Слайд 19

In the 21st century, where brands continually scout and find and grab and assimilate, everyone ends up doing pretty much what everyone else does.

Слайд 20

Add to these consumers that click and scan and compare and decide on gut feel, and victory for a brand becomes little more than a dice throw.

Слайд 21

You see, for the brand owner there is a distinct different in the offer - but everything has become a commodity in the eyes of the consumer.

Слайд 22

And it is because they think it’s all the same that you need to make your brand dynamically distinctly different and unforgettable.

Слайд 23

There is only one thing you can do that cannot be copied by the competition …

Слайд 24

You need to give your brand … personality.

Слайд 25

Brand personality reflects how people feel about your brand, rather than what they think the brand is or does.

Слайд 26

It is a unique collection of emotional triggers people can connect with.

Слайд 27

You can usually describe a brand personality as a collection of adjectives commonly used to describe people’s personalities   Conservative or progressive? Formal or Casual? Serious or playful? Leading or supportive? Stylish or plain? Reserved or outspoken? Stable or dynamic? Predictable or surprising?

Слайд 28

To effectively project this Brand Personality you need to:  

Слайд 29

Get a unique voice – find an interesting, unique, desirable and engaging way of sharing things with people.

Слайд 30

Use emotion – people connect with emotions so ooze emotions: be fun, funny, happy, serious, surprising, bouncy, silly, formal, romantic, scary, clever, strong, mysterious …

Слайд 31

Be very visual – 83% of human learning occurs visually so it only makes sense to give your brand personality a distinctive, instantly recognizable look.

Слайд 32

Create stories – The human brain is wired for storytelling – it is one of the most effective techniques for capturing the hearts and minds of people.

Слайд 33

Humanize the brand - above all, be human.

Слайд 34

Brand personality is the expression of the fundamental core values and characteristics of a brand.

Слайд 35

At the forefront is the visual expression of this brand personality. Here are some options:

Слайд 36

  Rope in some famous actor (OK, that might be a bit expensive)

Слайд 37

Find someone internal that fits the bill

Слайд 38

Express brand personality with body language

Слайд 39

Use props to express the brand personality

Слайд 40

Do the Hollywood treatment

Слайд 41

Find a unique, creative hook

Слайд 42

If you really can’t find someone suitable …  

Слайд 43

… or a suitable creative hook …

Слайд 44

Characters will do the trick.

Слайд 45

Characters come in all shapes and sizes so there’s bound to be one that will fit your brand and add oodles of personality

Слайд 46

The message is clear: either win consumers’ hearts or risk watching them chase after some other brand.

Слайд 47

Win them over with BRAND PERSONALITY
